Revive limp locks: Try a vinegar treatment
Whip up a terrific hair conditioner by combining 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar with 2 tablespoons olive oil and 3 egg whites. Rub the mixture into your hair, then keep it covered for 30 minutes using plastic wrap or a shower cap. When time’s up, shampoo and rinse as usual.
Fight frizz: Rub in essential oils
Mix a few drops of sandalwood oil with a few drops of olive or jojoba oil, rub the mixture between your palms, then smooth it through the ends of your hair for instant sleekness and a way to instantly curb and condition brittle, flyaway hair. Or you can squirt a few drops of hand lotion in your palm and smooth it through your hair.
Avoid flatness: Use hair spray sparingly
Too much hair spray can weigh down your hair, leaving it flat. Instead, try a styling spray that contains the B vitamin panthenol. It will condition your hair and help protect it from environmental and styling damage.
Pamper your hair: Coat in botanical oils
Olive, jojoba, and sweet almond oils are all wonderful elixirs for hair. (If your hair is thick and heavy, coconut oil works wonders). Dampen your hair and apply small amounts of the botanical oil until your hair is thoroughly covered. Cover with a shower cap and warm towel for a half-hour, then rinse and shampoo as usual.
Avoid split ends: Wrap wet hair gently in a towel
Instead of vigorously rubbing your hair to dry it, let the cotton towel absorb the moisture for a few minutes. This helps protect against split ends.
Add softness and shine: Try a DIY conditioner
Here are some simple tips to condition your hair using some everyday household ingredients:
Rub enough mayonnaise into your hair to coat it, wait up to an hour, and wash it out. You’ll be amazed at how soft and shiny your hair is, thanks to this great protein source.
Substitute condensed milk for your regular conditioner. The protein provides an extra-special shine.
Mix 2 ounces olive oil and 2 ounces aloe vera gel with 6 drops each of rosemary and sandalwood essential oils. Olive oil is an emollient, aloe hydrates, and rosemary adds body and softness.
